Monday hero: Kathleen Hale

Kathleen Hale (1898-2000), creator of Orlando, the marmalade cat lived to be a staggering 101!

She made 16 books about the red cat, the first one in 1938.

I love the way her drawings are soft but chrystal clear,

And I admire the rich colours, while everything is printed in just four.

And finally I like the way Orlando is still a real cat in every drawing, despite the human costumes and activities.
